The brief scientific discussion of '
the Heppner cloudburst bv John T. I
Whistler, published In the East Ore
Konlan last week has been the sub
ject of much comment from the press
of the Northwest and from private
citizens of Heppner and other places.
Almost ever)- paper of note In East
ern Oregon has reprinted the Inter
view as It appeared In these columns
and has commented upon It

It seems Impossible for the resi
dents of Heppner. who witnessed the
disaster to believe that a wall or
water only five feet deen outside of
the creek bed. did the awful damage
that the city suffered.
Yet Mr. Whistler's measurements,
surveys and cross sections of the
creek and the track of the flood, are
based on undlsputable. scientific pro
cesses. The area of the storm and
the concentration of water in the
Balm creek canyon can be proven by
the traces it Iert behind.
The amount of water that passed
through the town vas equal to a vol
ume one toot deep, over lllMl acres.
This amounts to 5S.S72.OOD cubic feot

Some idea of the awful pressure
exerted against thu town by this vol
ume of water moving 12 miles per
hour may be gained from a contempla
tion of these figures.
It was not the depth of the water
that wrought the havoc. It seems,
but the awful weight of ine volume,
and the velocity It had gained by the
time It had reached Heppner.
The speed of the flood was Impeded
by the wreckage gathered upon it
at Heppner. and It Is estimated that It
lequired at least one hour and 20
minutes for It to travel from Heppner
to Lexington, oniu; to tbo loss of
lorce by the widening of the valley
and the constant damming process of
the drlff carried cn the front t the
At Leximtun 1 ho nmount of water
in the volume had been reduced to
800 acre feet, from Jioci feet at Hepp
ner. The fall from Heppner to Lexington
Is 55 feet to 'he 1111U1 and tbo creels
bottom Is much wiJer "'inn nbov
Those who witnessed the flood say
the entire volume passed a given
point In Heppner In 50 minutes, which
would mean that over 70,000.000
pounds of water per minute passed
through the town traveling at 12
miles per hour, at that point.

Answering Fake "Ads."
A certain fellow who v:.KWred 0
vcitlsements In a cheap story papr
has had some interesting experiments.
He learned that by sending $1 to u
Yankee ho could got a euro for drunk
enness. And ho did. It wrs It) "lake
the pledge and Ho-p If Then be
sent 50 2-cent stamps to find out how
to raise turnips successfully. Hi
found out. "Just take hold of tho
tops and pull." j
Being young, ho wished to marry,
and sent 34 two-cent stamps to a Chi-1
cago firm for Information how to ,
make an Impression. When tho an
swer came It read: "Sit down on a!
pan of dough." It was a little rough,'
but he was a patient man, and thougut
he would yet succeed. '
Next advertisement be answreu
read "How to double your money in
six months." He was told to convert
his money Into bills, fold them and he
would see his money doubled.
Next he sent for 12 ubeful house
hold articles and he received a pack
age of needles.
He was slow to learn, so he sent
to find out "how to get rich." Work
like the devil and never spend a cent,
and that stopped him.
But his brother wrote to find out
how to wrilo without pen and Ink. He
was told to use a lead pencil.
He paid $1 to learn to live without
work and ho was told on a postal
card: "Fish for suckers, as we do."
